report. with former president of ubs investment bank robert wolffe and democratic strategist bob shrumpf. a republican talking point died a bloody death today. >> the obama administration promised that unemployment would not exceed 8%. >> would not exceed 8%. >> unemployment under 8%. >> below 8%. >> tonight a requiem for the 8% promise. the mitt romney coal miner story got even uglier today. we'll talk to the author of a new report that claims the owner of the ohio mine mitt romney visited forced workers to donate to the romney campaign. and the legendary actor lavar burton is mad at mitt romney for going after big bird. >> i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs. i love big bird. >> tonight lamar burton with the real story about pbs. >> the real story? >> the real story. good to have you with us tonight folks. thanks for watching. the unemployment numbers for september were released today. it is good news for the american recovery. somebody said obama didn't know anything about the economy. well, forget that for now. the national unemployment rate fell to, count it, 7.8%. 114,000 jo
the answers are. i'm joined by democratic strategist bob shrum and salon's joan walsh. first, however, we have two new national polls on the presidential race. let's check the "hardball" scoreboard. according to a new "washington post"/abc news poll, president obama has a two-point lead holding there, 49%/47%. same score in the new politico poll. obama by two, 49%/47%. "the new york times" this weekend reported on the two campaigns' ongoing debate preps. here is what they said about romney's prep. quote, mr. romney's team has concluded that the debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers he's memorized and has been practicing on aides since august. bob shrum, you have been on that particular role, preparing candidates for debate. what do you make of romney, a rather stiff customer to begin with, coming off as sort of a henny youngman or whatever, some sort of a don rickles with some zingers. i don't think of him as a zinger kind of guy where obama is expected to be left helpless. what do you make of that strategy? >> first of all, if you had it, you wouldn'
're going to play in 33 days if this man is allowed to continue. joining me now, bob shrum, democratic strategist, senior adviser to the kerry and gore campaigns who also ran ted kennedy's campaign against romney in 1994. he's writing in the daily beast oig today saying romney won the debate, but it was no game changer. and jared bernstein, msnbc contributor and former chief economist for vice president joe biden. bb, let me start with you. what are your thoughts? >> first of all, romney won a victory that was a victory of performance art built on a whole set of lies. i think people have counted up to 28 to 30 lies. and i actually think the president deserves some credit for at a couple of critical points holding romney accountable. it's a big victory to get romney to own voucher care as a replacement for medicare and the president also took romney on when he said no one over 65 will be affected because of the rebeautiful obamacare in fact as the president pointed out, seniorses will pay $600 more for prescription drugs and the medicare trust if you said will expire eight years sooner.
is gela trapp, and i sea food differently. well, if itmr. margin?margin. don't be modest, bob. you found a better way to pack a bowling ball. that was ups. and who called ups? you did, bob. i just asked a question. it takes a long time to pack a bowling ball. the last guy pitched more ball packers. but you... you consulted ups. you fod a better way. that's logistics. that's margin. find out what else ups knows. i'll do that. you're on a roll. that's funny. i wasn't being funny, bob. i know. ♪ >> rick: the headlines, this saturday, the military shooting down an unmanned aerial drone which crossed over the mediterranean sea and into israel's southern desert, the first hostile violation of israeli air space, in at least six years. and, the vatican says bthe pope former butler will be facing 18 months, for leaking the pope's private letters to reporters. >> a pop fly was ruled out under the infield fly rule, despite dropping safely in the out field and so the braves lost the one game wildcard to the cardinals, 6-3. >> arthel: politics, the race for the white house, tightening, and three ke
of one except the bob dole, remarking about the wars, world war i and ii, but by and large, i don't think they are much more than entertainment, although they're great entertainment. >> yes, indeed, i'm looking forward to the one years ago, that was entertaining. and larry ssabato, i have to sa thank you to you. and somebody else being featur d in politics will be after you. >>> and take a look -- >> it is your birthday, anyway, all right, you guys, good to see you both. thank you so much. and speaking of office politics, today we have former new jersey governor who discusses the policy with ronald reagan, and why in the heartland, women are going to the polls, starting with mitt romney's flub. >> the problem is he is not wrong in saying 47% of the people don't pay taxes, and 47% of the people today have to rely on government more than they had to, because the job situation was so bad. but the problem with that was, what he went on to say, i don't have to worry about them. i always worry about the 35%, no matter what i do, they wouldn't vote for me, hardline democrats, wouldn't cross over
: i'm reading the bob word ward book and paints not a pretty picture of what's going on at the white house. maybe they don't know what they're do. let's factor in the possibility of a total imcompetence. which is terrible! >> right. it's one of those things that they either knew what they were doing or they did not know what they were doing. which is worse? >> gretchen: they also had the videotape situation to use as a cover ostensibly tore a considerable amount of time. and also you have to factor in that the average american is not paying attention to foreign policy and otherwise on a daily basis like we are on this couch and people who typically watch fox news. they're not. so what is in their mind for foreign policy is that president obama took out osama bin laden. >> i don't know. i think that people are paying enough attention across the board to look at this and you could even look at some of the headlines in main stream media and say, they certainly screwed up on september 11 on the anniversary and then they didn't have their story straight and they still won't admit they di
, so thank you to bob mcdonald for the all the work he's doing, a great governor. [cheers and applause] and you may know that a couple of nights ago we had a debate, you may have gotten the chance to see that. [cheers and applause] and it was a good experience, i think, for me, for the president, for people who watched. it was a debate of substance. we talked about the issues that america faces. i got the chance to ask the president some questions that people, i think people across the country have wanted to ask the president such as why it was that when america was needing jobs so badly, he was pushing for obamacare instead of working to get jobs for the american people. [cheers and applause] got the chance to ask him why there's still 23 million americans that are out of work or stopped looking for work, struggling to find good full-time jobs. i got the chance to ask him why it is the middle class is so buried in this country. incomes have gone down, prices of gasoline have doubled, prices of food and clothing and almost everything else you buy has gone up. people in the middle class
with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfolded. take a listen. >> london, how serious is it? any implications that it was coming here, and any of the things they have seen coming here? >> and-- i was surprised you didn't know about london, director clapper. >> oh,
will, on governor romney and his lack of specifics and an agenda. you have to weave and bob at the same time. that's what a good debater does. >> let me bring in anne. is this a good strategy. you say you promised you would create 1 million new manufacturing jobs and hiring 100,000 math and science teachers and he talked about the jobs bill blokd by republicans and transportation bill blocked by republicans. is that the follow-up? how do you break this fever if it exists to a second term? >> i think chris is right. i think he has to do that to a certain extent. we saw the idea of running against congress work well in the past. congress has a lower approval rating than the president or mitt romney at this point. you can do a certain extent of blaming congress, but he has to talk about his own vision or what he would do if he got congress to do it and then turn it back on romney, and say, what would he do? we haven't heard the specifics. bobbing and we'aving is one way to put it as chris did. he'll do all of that. we heard from the advisers they practice giving short answers, so let's see
to the economy would be so great. i often times disagree he with my counter part bob mcdonald in virginia but happen to share a region of science and security. jobs depend on our abuilt to put a greater priority on the nation's defense and a balanced budget than it does on more tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. >> chris: senator? >> i just have to make two points. first of all, we know from bob woodward's book this was the president's idea on sequestration. second, do you know that when the president was in the senate he and hillary clinton introduced a bill to allow workers to have greater notice but now he doesn't want to comply with the law because these notices will fall right before the election. here is the most disturbing fact. what sequestration does to our national security and this president has not shown leadership and i'm deeply concerned. he should be leading the effort right now in congress to resolve this. >> he is. >> chris: less than a minute left. early indications after the debate that romney got some kind of bump in the polls. i will ask you both briefly, 30
, retired democratic senator sam nunn and former republican senator bob bennett appears jointly on fox business network. each offering relatively modest proposals to fix this mess. listen closely. >> we particularly have to discuss, frankly, with the american people, that the entitlement programs simply cannot maintain the same trajection. we will not cut social security or cut people's medicare but we have to bend the coastline down. >> there are trillions of dollars waiting on the sidelines for some sense of certainty, to come into the economy and invest ment. >>neil: if though get their act together. >>guest: otherwise the money will not come in. >>neil: a coiled plan that waits if someone office a plan. we do not have to solve the debt mess but just she the world we are serious about tackles the mess. ask bill clinton. sometimes you just need a do-able plan that is enough to get the markets believing and the rating agencies to hold off downgrading and have americans feeling more confident. you did not have to wave a wand and tell us how you will make all the red ink disappear overn
president. he was little bit modest. then clinton and bob dole. >> howard dean said that president obama should not make the same mistake al gore did in 2000 against george w. bush. >> that's not the way america's meant to be. >> and there, there's nixon with the flop sweat. george h.w. bush looking at his watch. appearances count, don't they? >> they really do. and a professional knows that. george h.w. bush in that debate, that third one in richmond in 1992, he was looking at his watch because he was trying to make the point that one of the other candidates had run over time. it didn't really compute this was sending the message that he was impatient, just the kind of message he didn't want to send. >> humor can be an effective tool, diffuse a weakness. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> and at that moment, a lot of people said well, there's the ball game. including his opponent. >> including walter mondale. >> what do you think about humor as a tool in this debate tonight? >> you'd
about an hour and a half ago what the various candidates need to do tonight? bob in missouri, the show me state wrote this, keep it simple, mitt. romney must deliver a consistents yet simple message on our economy without getting too deep into numbers and class labels. so will he follow bob's advice? >> martha: maureen in maine, romney must back the president up against a wall, she says, and not move until he actually answers the question. she's going for a much more adepressive mode. we'll see. >> brian: that's something jim lehre has to do. he's getting upset because people are saying there is -- the moderator should be more diverse. everybody on the panel that's been chosen, from martha readydich. >> steve: meanwhile, the big question is tonight, the topic will be domestic issues. will jim lehrer ask mitt romney about the 47% comment that was caught on cell phone camera? probably. the smart money is that that question will be asked. >> brian: definitely. >> steve: however, will he ask about some video that came to light last night? it was first broadcast last night on the hannity pr
be a mistake. that was ups. and who called ups? you did, bob. i just asked a question. it takes a long time to pack a bowling ball. the last guy pitched more ball packers. but you... you consulted ups. you found a better way. that's logistics. that's margin. find out what else ups knows. i'll do that. you're on a roll. that's funny. i wasn't being funny, bob. i know. stay top of mind with customers? from deals that bring them in with an offer... to social media promotions that turn fans into customers... to events that engage and create buzz... to e-mails that keep loyal customers coming back, our easy-to-use tools will keep you in front of your customers. see what's right for you at >>> all right. >> jim, let me come back on the point. >> just for the record -- excuse me, just so everybody understands. we are way over our first 15 minutes. >> that's fun, season the it? >> that's good. >> great, no problem. >> if you don't have a problem, i don't have a problem, we're still on the economy, we'll come back to taxes, i want to move on to the deficit and a lot of other
kerry was using bob shrum as their debate coach and said to karl rove, you need a debate coach for the president, and he hired me. and that was my first job in politics, was coaching president bush. jenna: fascinating, karl rove surfaces again somewhere out there. >> with the mastermind of all. [laughter] jenna: you know, i didn't ever participate in the debate team. one of the things i did was play sports, and you watch game tape, right? you watch a lot of film. we just showed film of reagan and carter, and i'm curious, do can you as a coach show film, tape of past debates? do you use that as part of your teaching mechanism? >> absolutely. you know, debaters are really kind of failed athletes at heart, so we show them game film. they take the same kind of preparation that an athlete does. there's really three things you have to do to prepare a good political debater. the first is they have to know the issues, they have to know their position on the issues, and they have to know the other person's position on the issues. the second thing, you have to have a strategy. it's just
